Re-post of an statement from Patton Oswalt
"I remember, when 9/11 went down, my reaction was, 'Well, I've had it with humanity.' But I was wrong," Patton wrote. "I don't know what's going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem. One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths."
"But here's what I DO know," he continued. "If it's one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out."
"The vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak," the Young Adult star wrote. "This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We'd have eaten ourselves alive long ago."
"So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, 'The good outnumber you, and we always will."
Have a great day sparkfriends and please for today and everyday, pray for this planet we live on and its inhabitants.
